1. Information Literacy Assessment Workshop

Once again, Fogler Library is partnering with the Office of Assessment to offer an Information Literacy Assessment workshop. The workshop will be held Thursday, January 12th, from 2-4 in the University Club, Fogler Library. Refreshments will be provided.

The workshop is designed to explain the concept of Information Literacy, look at actual examples of Information Literacy assessment used in classes, and provide hands-on time working with assessment tools.

This workshop is open to all faculty, teaching assistants, and adjunct teaching faculty. You can register for the workshop online.

2. Photographs from Maine History Journal on Display in Library

A recent issue of Maine History, a journal published by the Maine Historical Society in cooperation with the Department of History at the University of Maine, reflects on UMaine’s 150th anniversary, focusing particularly on the period since the centennial celebration in 1965. The special issue previews a larger volume being edited by Professor Howard P. Segal to be published by the University of Maine Press.

Photographs used in illustrating the issue are on display outside the library’s Oakes Room. Maine History is available in the Special Collections Department or through the Maine Historical Society.
